You've got a great look, we're not going to deny it. But think about how much better you could look if your cheeks were just a tad more sunken in, if you were just a tad more waif-like. This week on Sawbones, Dr. Sydnee and Justin are gonna help you get that freshly-infected-with-tuberculosis look.

RISK! is a live show and podcast “where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public” hosted by Kevin Allison, of the legendary TV sketch comedy troupe The State. The award-winning live show happens monthly in New York and Los Angeles. It’s featured people like Janeane Garofalo, Lisa Lampanelli, Kevin Nealon, Margaret Cho, Marc Maron, Sarah Silverman, Lili Taylor, Rachel Dratch, Andy Borowitz and more, dropping the act and showing a side of themselves we’ve never seen before. The weekly podcast gets hundreds of thousands of downloads each month. Slate.com called it “jaw-dropping, hysterically funny, and just plain touching.”
In conjunction with the show, the Story Studio will also be providing a Reno storytelling workshop with Kevin Allison.
Do you have a great story, yet not sure the best way to tell it, or don't feel you have the know-how? Join us as we bring to Reno for the first time Kevin Allison to host a storytelling workshop at 12:30pm on the day of the show at Good Luck MacBeth Theater. Due to the adult nature of the subject matter, this event is 18 and over ONLY!

The Goosedown's latest episode, "White History Month" was originally supposed to be one episode, but we simply couldn't tackle it all in forty minutes, so we broke it up into three installments. If you haven't heard the 1st installment, it was all about White TV shows that we loved. This easily could have been two episodes by itself, and some of our selections unfortunately ended up on the cutting room floor. So here are some of our honorable mentions: Arrested Development, Portlandia, Sex In The City, and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Jasper also discussed the impact that the show Seinfeld had on him as a kid and how it inspired him to do stand-up. A lot of really good stuff was omitted. Maybe we'll put together an episode with "Goosedown moments" that didn't make the cut. Look out for White History Month Parts II & III.
In the first installment of The Goosedown celebrating White History Month Kim & Jasper discuss their favorite white television shows. Also "You Aint Up On Dis" returns and a special closing thank you to white people.
Biz and Theresa navigate the judgey minefield of sleep training and barely escape with our lives, plus Theresa goes to a Mommy-and-Me movie and Biz lets Katherine Belle watch a movie NOT made for 4-year-olds. And, we get professional help from pediatric sleep expert Jodi Mindell!
